Red Sox make changes to exhibition schedule

The Red Sox announced Thursday that, because of conflicts with Major League Baseball's season-opening games, their exhibition game at Houston on Thursday, March 31, has been canceled. The Sox will play a scheduled game against the Astros at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday, March 30, at 8 p.m., then open their season in Arlington against the Texas Rangers on Friday, April 1, at 4:05 p.m.

To make up for the lost game against the Astros, the Sox have added two split-squad games against Houston: At Fort Myers on Tuesday, March 8, and at Kissimmee on Friday, March 11.
